Oregon City Council on Monday will consider hiring Poggemeyer Design Group for $39,640 to provide professional engineering services for the final design and bidding for the Stadium Road Bikeway Phase 2 project.
Besides Poggemeyer, the city received proposals from Bramhall Engineering and Surveying Co., Inc., LJB, Inc., Northwest Consultants, Inc., Proudfoot Associates Consulting Engineers, Shaffer Pomeroy Ltd., and Tetra Tech to provide engineering services for the project.
Poggemeyer had the best proposal to meet the needs of the city, according to Public Service Director Paul Roman at a Feb. 6 committee of the whole meeting.
“The city received seven qualification statements for the design. But after comparing the firms, we did feel the most qualified was Poggemeyer Design Group, especially considering they did a very good job designing four other Oregon bikeway projects,” said Roman.
Poggemeyer conducted the final design for Stadium Road Bikeway Phase 1, a 10-foot wide asphalt multi-use path extending from South Shore Park to Eagles’ Landing Drive that was constructed in 2002; the Municipal Complex Connector Bikeway project Phase I, a 10-foot wide, off road path along Wolf Creek and Starr Extension that was constructed in 2003; the Municipal Complex Connector Bikeway project Phase 2, which connects the city municipal complex to Clay High School that was completed in 2008; and the Pearson Park Connector Bikeway project, constructed in 2010.
The Stadium Road Bikeway Phase 2 will connect the existing Municipal Complex Connector, currently ending on Corduroy Road on the Clay High School frontage, to the existing Stadium Road Bikeway that currently ends just north of Eagles Landing Drive. The bikeway will be a 10-foot wide asphalt multi-use path with two feet wide treated shoulders and will be 8,100-feet long.
“This project is the last leg of the master plan of the main bikeway path that would go from Pearson Park to Maumee Bay State Park,” said Roman.
The estimated construction cost of the project is $525,000.
The city has received a $440,000 Transportation Enhancement Grant from the Federal Highway Administration to construct the Stadium Road Bikeway Phase 2 project.
“We’re hoping to have it designed throughout this year and looking for construction in 2013,” said Roman.
